Grey Angel

I am a White Angel
Trying to cope
I am a White Angel
Filled with lost hope

I am a Dark Angel
Wishing to be dead
I am a Dark Angel
Filled with dread 

I am a Grey Angel
My soul withered and worn
I am a Grey Angel
My wings tattered and torn

I am the wing`ed,
My heart never knows
I am the wing`ed,
My sorrow sown in rows

I am all of the above,
Decided yet confused
I am all of the above,
The lost and accused

Wing'd, perhaps?

I really enjoyed this; I liked the way you acknowledged the light in dark that resides in us all...

Ok now i slowly get your message. But you are not transitioning!!!!! I want to see a connection between all the stanza's Now its your job to help the reader walk the bridge from the white angel. to the dark angel. then the dark angel. to the grey angel. Then an angel to a person. then she to me. Maybe a repeating line inbetween all these stanza's could be effective???

Feel the fear, and do it anyway because even though it's not too late, one day, it will be.

Synopsis
A/N: I don't know how to show a grave accent on the winged, so I put "wing`ed". Hope that doesn't confuse you. So, this is one of my really old poems. I bet you can tell, heh. It's not very well developed and it probably could be labeled cliche, but I still like it... Oh, and I'm still working on it so do not be surprised if you see parts tken out or added.
